[i18n-activity] language tags in Verifiable Credentials Data Model 1.0

stpeter has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/i18n-activity:

== language tags in Verifiable Credentials Data Model 1.0 ==
Verifiable Credentials Data Model 1.0

The specification contains examples of fields for which it would be best to specify the language, such as:

> "name": "Jane Doe"

Other such examples are hinted at (e.g., various address fields). It is not clear from the specification if these examples, express or implied, are normative, or where the underlying ontologies are defined. In any case, there really must be a mechanism to specify the language of such fields, and there should be a mechanism to include multiple instances of the same field with different language tags (e.g., a name both in Latin script and in Japanese, as people often have on business cards and sometimes on official documents).
